Help Us Grow... one acre at a time.
In 2002, we opened our soup kitchen in an 800 square foot space. That small space was given the name Greensburg Community Bread of Life. In 2010, we moved to a 2,000 square foot space to continue our mission and serve more people.
Farmers Feeding the Flock proceeds allowed us to purchase a food rescue van and put the down payment on our recently renovated building. We served our first meal in this new space in January 2022.
As we celebrate 20 years we have become much more than a free hot meal to those in need. We provide food boxes to foster self-sufficiency; host financial education and life skills classes; and we guide patrons to other partner agencies offering assistance.
In an effort to support these endeavors, we are partnering with a local farmer for our fifth annual fundraiser, "Farmers Feeding the Flock."
How the program works:
Farmers Feeding the Flock is our second largest annual fundraiser. This endeavor is a beautiful example of a partnership between our soup kitchen and local agricultural leaders to raise funds to feed the hungry. How it works:
A local farmer provides acreage for planting.
Bread of Life asks for in-kind gifts from local agriculture businesses as well as donations from our donors to help offset the cost of soil preparation, planting, fertilization, and harvest.
After the growing season, crops are harvested and sold.
Greensburg Community Bread of Life then receives all net profits to support expansion needs.
Would you consider partnering with Bread of Life by "helping us grow..one acre at a time"? Any donation, no matter its size, will make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.
The 2022 Farmers Feeding the Flock field was planted Sunday, May 15. Like many area farms, the field could use a good rain, but it is growing!
A shout out to Shirk Family Farms for donating the 25 acres of soybeans for our 5th Annual Farmers Feeding the Flock fundraiser. The field is located near the junction of State Road 3 and 500 North. As you're heading north on SR 3, the sign is hard to miss.
